I'm blogging from the road this week enjoying the NCAA tourny from a friend's house. Man, was Belmont this close to pulling off THE upset of upsets. Oh well.
Anyway, great to see that Brad Penny was flawless in his start today. His final line was 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 K. He's now ready for his Opening Day start against the Giants. No offense to Derek Lowe, but if was given the ball to start another season, I was going to flip out.
Rafael Furcal has raised his spring average to .327 by going 4-5 with a home run, double, and 2 runs scored. It was an interesting lineup today that had Furcal leading off and Ethier in the 2 hole. Must have worked because they ran off 8 runs. Matt Kemp bombed a 3-run shot in the 7th inning. Not a bad day at all for their Arizona debut.
Chan Ho Park and his 12 inning scoreless streak will take the mound tomorrow vs. the Diamondbacks. It's still a tossup between he and Esteban Loaiza, so it's a big start.
